SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The U.S. Army says Sgt Bowe Bergdahl has been released from the Texas hospital he was admitted to when he arrived back in the U.S. more than a week ago.

Bergdahl is now receiving medical and psychological outpatient care on Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, an Army spokesman said in a statement released Sunday.

The Idaho native was captured in June 2009 and freed by the Taliban on May 31 in a deal struck by the Obama administration in which five senior Taliban officials were released from detention at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The spokesperson said Bergdahl's reintegration process was progressing with exposure to more people and a gradual increase of social interactions. It is unclear if Bergdahl has seen his parents yet.

Also, the debriefings and counseling continue to ensure he progresses to the point where he can return to duty.

His location is being kept secret and will not be shared with the public in order to safeguard the reintegration process.

The Army said last week it's investigating Bergdahl's disappearance and capture. It says investigators won't interview Bergdahl until those helping him recover say it's all right.
